Things to know
We have a limited supply of ice. Please fill up your cooler and water jug before you come each day. Use the cubbies under the lobby tv for your racquet bag so you know exactly where to find it when we call for your match. Two chairs are on each court. Check-in is 30 minutes before each match except for 8am matches who may check in 15 minutes early. We will start giving out the balls and assigning the courts before 8am. You must have your shoes on and be ready to go on the court when you check-in. Last year we did put some matches on 30 minutes early. When we call you if you are not ready you can be penalized under the USTA point penalty system for the delay. We have a lot of matches to play and do our best to keep this event moving and on time. Please remember that per Friend at Court late penalties now start at match time for all players scheduled for that time as long as 1 court is available. Draws will be updated on line throughout the day.
